"The Desperate Cycle" traces the daily battle that a family at the bottom of the social and economic structure of Jamaica must wage. The forces of environmental pollution, police brutality and political neglect and corruption press upon them through three generations. Successive cycles engulf them, but never defeat their resilience, humor and wit. Dark laughter pervades the story.
